Hi, I'm Constantina and welcome to my website !

I was born in Montreal in the 1960s and I have lived in this wonderful city all my life. 
After graduating from the Fine Arts program at Dawson College a long time ago, 
I continued my studies in graphic design and technical illustration at local colleges
and computer graphics courses at Concordia University

I worked as a technical illustrator and publications designer in aviation
for over twenty years and now I work freelance from my home
studio creating illustrations for children's literature and educational books
and materials for all ages. I work with coloured pencils and digital media and
my interest and expertise is in developing images that explain concepts and
processes and that provide visual information

I am inspired by minimalist design and shapes and textures found in nature. 
I love to observe plants and trees on nature walks and on travels with my husband.
All the seasons are beautiful to me no matter what weather they bring and I have 
recently begun exploring the cycle of life and botanical themes through photography

Books I have illustrated:
